, ukraining we've got to balance a number of issues also. our nato allies. i believe that sanctions work but only when they're multilateral sanctions and we do sanctions individually and not as strong as they would be multilaterally yet a number of our nato allies have concerns and we've got to make sure they're part of whatever we do. we can't separate ourselves, in my viewpoint, from them. and that's -- our nato allies are tremendously important. some control experts continue to report that russia could potentially withdraw from treaties such as the i.n.f. and that they may further -- any further expansion of arms control efforts will likely make no headway for the foreseeable future system of, some of my colleagues, some of the pun -- i hear some pundits saying, give weapons, more sanctions, very few people are talking about diplomatic solutions. my first question is, do either of you still see, i believe there's still hope, we should talk and have conversations with nations we don't disagree with. is diplomacy an option here? do you seedy employee macy having an a chance here? or it

just saying, david. consider nato undermine putin domestically? the ukraine invasion, or i think this person means the crimea invasion, hasn't solved the human rights crisis in russia. should nato be taking steps to maybe destabilize the russian regime or to work towards better human rights in russia? it goes to the question about whether this should become an anti-russia alliance. >> is that for me? >> why don't we start with tom and andrew? a few minutes. >> look, andrew will disagree with me on this, so we can take too two minutes each. >> take one minute each, one minute each. >> look, the question is, what are we trying to achieve, and how do you get there? i think we would all like to see russia be a full-blooded democratic society with western values. it isn't. it isn't going to get there for a long time. the question is what can outsiders do that is positive and constructive in that process? we all know, at the end of the day, it has to be something the russians do themselves. we can position ourselves in a way that narrows the space for the types of development we like to see
